In 2001, Chung started Migration Music Festival, an annual music festival organized around the theme of “migration”, with the aim to provide a platform for integrating music and cultural issues, and sound experiments. Chung currently teaches at the College of Communication of the National Cheng-chi University, and is acting as the director of the NCCU Art and Culture Center. In 2011, she made her first trip to India, which has brought her to a later journey on documentary filmmaking. In 2013, she has completed her first documentary film From Border to Border.

The film is nominated for 2014 Taipei Film Award.
